Introduction :
--------------
My name is Paul (aka GTR233) and I have started to make GTR2 skins 5 years ago at nogrip with HQ MODS like HQ AMBIENT SHADOW, HQ LENS FLARE, HQ HEADLIGHTS, HQ RAIN and HQ HUD. Time passing, I have met a nice sim community (Arthur, ArmedLightning, David Wright & DucFreak, derDumeklemmer, DurgeDriven, leon_90, NeelJ, Philipp, Scorpyo, Shovas, syhlif32, ...so many good people that I just cannot list all but I always write name in credits when I get some help or use someone else work) who gave me advices and helped me to make GTR2 better. Back in 2015 syhlif32 told me : "next year GTR2 will be 10 years old so a 10th anniversary patch with all updates available will be smart"... the GTR2 10th Anniversary Patch was born, and I decided to extend it to GT Legends too.

SPECIAL THANKS to all people who worked for Blimey! Games & SimBin Sweden : David Wright, DucFreak, Doug Arnao, Mark Reynolds, Eric Boosman,... and the big bosses Henrik Roos & Ian Bell for having made such a legendary sim !

Last Changelog
--------------
v14.0
- We are in 2020 so no more 10th anniversary but 15th anniversary of GTL, this is the reason why I decided to change the name of the mod from "GTL 10th Anniversary Patch" to "GTL HQ Anniversary Patch"
- updated HQ FOV DEFVIEWS to v11.0 : disabled shake
- updated GT Legends HQ MOD to v14_0 : reworked sun lighting, removed spa invisible wall in pits
- added 3 plugins presets available for ENBSeries + XD combos, just extract zip and overwrite files to activate preset of your choice
- added GTR2_hidden_keys_by_DucFreak.txt in [OPTIONS]\b-[README] because most shortcuts work in GTL too
- added 2 blank profiles ready to play with some tweaks : BROKE (you start from crash), and RICH (all cars/tracks unlocked + 100,000,000 cash)

v14.1
- updated GT Legends HQ MOD to v14_1 : reworked sun lighting again because I was not satisfied by rendering in combination with updated HDR plugin
- removed BROKE and kept only RICH profile preset with all cars/tracks and money (asked by many people who did not manage to make unlocker work) but you can always delete RICH (either in UserData or via menu) and create a new profile without unlocker if you do not want to cheat

Last Changelog
--------------
v10.3.1
- added official StarForce-free files released by SimBin 10 years ago (thanks to Vanaja) : back in 2010 we could get this version if we sent a picture of the GTL DVD with serial number. Only few files in \GTL\ were updated, it is not the full game, you still need to buy it either disc version or digital Steam version : by the way it is Steam Summer Sales at the moment with -50% discount so make you a favor and buy it alone or get the full SimBin Bundle for cheap price because it is total bargain ;)
- this 2010 GTL.EXE is NOCD by default and I have applied the 4GB patch
- updated splash screen
- updated e-[GTL HQ MOD v10_3] : synced tyres slip curves with GTR2 HQ 2020 tyres, reworked track lighting for darker shadows

| GT Legends 10th Anniversary PATCH v10.3 by GTR233 and friends |
-------------------------------------------------------------------

ULTRA VERY IMPORTANT : READ "GTL 10th Anniversary PATCH_readme.txt" and follow EXACTLY the steps if you have never installed GTL 10th Anniversary PATCH...otherwise you will cry and post in forums "GTL CRASHED PLEASE HELP!" ...ANSWERS are here so PLEASE READ CAREFULLY THIS README.TXT + INSTALL.TXT BECAUSE THERE ARE MANY INFORMATIONS AND OPTIONS, IT IS QUITE COMPLEX FOR NEWBIES.

This archive was compressed with 7-zip archiver v19.00 so you need at least v19.00 to extract archive without errors (update your archiver if it tells you that the archive is corrupted) : https://www.7-zip.org (I recommend to NOT download ALPHA versions, leave them to devs)
Archive size = 488 Mo
Archive MD5 hash = e05c81049af24002ccb589ea5a0e1296


Last Changelog
--------------
v10.3
- updated New GFX by Syhlif32 in [OPTIONS]\h-[GTL New GFX by syhlif32]\
- added 3DSimEd HardwareShaders by Syhlif32 in [OPTIONS]\k-[SKIN TOOLS]\
- merged PATCH_FOR_DISC_VERSION.bat with GTL_debug.bat : after first install you will need to run GTL_debug.bat once then you will be able to run GTL.EXE safely
- moved sfdrvrem.exe in [OPTIONS]\r-[Official StarForce Driver Removal Tool]\
- updated GT Legends HQ MOD to v10.2 : updated HDC with SteeringFFBMult=1.1 to avoid clipping (thanks to Shovas for advice)
- updated GT Legends HQ SPARCO SUITS 2018 to v1.4 : removed bump map due to shadow glitch
- updated GT Legends MULTI-PATCHES to v1.2 : updated fire car skin
- updated HQ FOV DEFVIEWS to v10.0 : reduced LODMultiplier to 1.1 which is still good enough to not see GRAND STAND pop up at Spa Rivage corner as with default 1.0 value (previous 1.25 value greatly reduced clipping such as trees/objects pop up but counterpart was a lot more CPU/GPU stress which tends to increase stuttering as reported by many people). By the way you can manually adjust LODMultiplier in menu : OPTIONS > ADVANCED > LEVEL OF DETAILS BIAS, increase cursor to the right if you experience no stuttering and want more objects displayed, on the contrary reduce cursor to the left to display less objects if your computer is not powerful enough

ONLINE INFORMATION :
--------------------
GT Legends is more than 10 years old now and SimBin lobby online server is definitely closed : this means that your only chance to play GT Legends online nowadays is to join a GTL league such as altbierbude.de or simracing.org.uk by example.
Moreover, this GT Legends 10th Anniversary PATCH will overwrite stock files so you may experience online mismatch with your favorite GTL league server. In order to by-pass this issue you can try to :
- edit your PLR file in GTL\UserData\USERNAME.PLR with notepad, go to line 492 at "Report Mismatches=" and set it to "0"
- restore stock game files from [OPTIONS]\e-[STOCK GAME BACKUP]
- ask your league manager to add GT Legends 10th Anniversary PATCH files to the server

RECOMMENDED PLR SETTINGS :
--------------------------
go to \GT Legends\UserData\YOURNAME to make a backup of YOURNAME.plr then open it with notepad and replace these lines :

AI Driver Strength Boost="0" // For the hardcore only - strength value added to in-game difficulty levels to make AI faster
AI Power Calibration="4" // Adjustments with AI strength (0=none, or add the following: 1=power, 2=gearing, 4=fuel)
AI Additional Fuel Mult="1.00" // Additional fuel multiplier for AIs because of their driving style
AI Brake Power Usage="0.96" // Fraction of theoretical brake power that AI attempt to use
AI Brake Grip Usage="0.96" // Fraction of theoretical brake grip that AI attempt to use
AI Corner Grip Usage="0.93" // you can set value between 0.90 for slow AI and 0.96 for fast AI. THIS IS THE MOST EFFECTIVE SETTING TO ADJUST AI SPEED TO YOUR OWN DRIVING SKILLS (confirmed by Shovas and Andrew C. Clegg)
AI Max Load="42000.00000" // Maximum total load to set up theoretical performance tables
AI Min Radius="8.00000" // Minimum radius turn to set up theoretical performance tables
AI to AI Collision Rate="32" // Detection rate per second (1-40) for AI-to-AI collisions (40 is FPS killer with heavy mods/tracks)
Player Car Equal="0"

Vehicle Specific AI Setups="0" // This last one is VERY IMPORTANT when you use PHYSICS MODS because SVM files are no more compatible with stock settings !!!


CTD TRACE FILE

HOW TO CREATE CUSTOM CHAMPIONSHIPS IN GTL : (ONLY AVAILABLE IN OPTIONAL HQ MOD NOW!!!)
-------------------------------------------
By default I set fia-gtc76 cars for CUP_CustomChampionshipTemplate.GDB but you just need notepad (notepad++ is better to modify many files at the same time) to make your own championship :

- to begin with you must create a specific tag, could be any word you want, in my example it is SIM_CUSTOM1 : choose some cars (20-28) to make a grid and open all the *.CAR files in notepad++, click Search>Replace...

Find what: classes="
Replace with: classes="SIM_CUSTOM1,

click REPLACE ALL IN ALL OPENED DOCUMENTS, then click SAVE ALL and CLOSE ALL

- now you can use your new tag SIM_CUSTOM1 : go to GTL\GameData directory, open CUP_CustomChampionshipTemplate.GDBÂ with notepad++, use replace tool again with replace

Find what: SIM_GTC76
Replace with: SIM_CUSTOM1

click REPLACE ALL, then you can modify/edit the championship name, the laps number and the tracks schedule... save file and enjoy your custom championship :)

- you can change the name of GDB file and add as many championships GDB but you will need to make some changes in GTL\GameData\CUPSTAGES.GDB : when you open CUPSTAGES.GDB go to line 100 (notepad++ show you line number) and edit/add your new championships GDB names in the list of CUSTOM CHAMPIONSHIPS STAGE just below CUP_CustomChampionshipTemplate.gdb.
In Game, with GTL 10TH Anniversary UI you can use the 6th extra CUP STAGE I have added called CUSTOM CHAMPIONSHIPS, then you can access to the championships you have added previously in CUPSTAGES.GDB.
By default, you can only see 6 championships on the page so you will need to use your mouse wheel (thanks to Mushy for this easter egg) to navigate and display more than 6 championships.

I repeat, if you don't like my physics then you can either try the excellent PLGTL physics mod or restore [STOCK GAME BACKUP] in [OPTIONS] folder.
By the way, restoring [STOCK GAME BACKUP] is mandatory if you race online.

ONLINE INFORMATION :
--------------------
GT Legends is more than 10 years old now and SimBin lobby online server is definitely closed : this means that your only chance to play GT Legends online nowadays is to join a GTL league such as altbierbude.de or simracing.org.uk by example.
Moreover, this GT Legends 10th Anniversary PATCH will overwrite stock files so you may experience online mismatch with your favorite GTL league server. In order to by-pass this issue you can try to :
- edit your PLR file in GTL\UserData\USERNAME.PLR with notepad, go to line 492 at "Report Mismatches=" and set it to "0"
- restore stock game files from [OPTIONS]\e-[STOCK GAME]
- ask your league manager to add GT Legends 10th Anniversary PATCH files to the server

Installation :
--------------
TIP: you can have multiple GT Legends installs on your PC so a new/clean install dedicated to this 10t Anniversary PATCH is highly recommended and no need to backup files in this case : you can skip step 1 and go ahead to step 2.

1) BACKUP (make a 7z/rar/zip archive to save your files)
---------
GTL\GameData\Sounds (ALL FOLDER)
GTL\GameData\Teams\M-FPDriver.gmt
GTL\GameData\Teams\M-FPDriver2.gmt
GTL\GameData\Locations\SHARED\Skies_Central.gtl
GTL\GameData\Locations\SHARED\Skies_North.gtl
GTL\GameData\Locations\SHARED\Skies_South.gtl
GTL\MovieFiles\SimBin.bik

GTL\UIData\UIAssets.gtl
GTL\UserData\defviews.cam
GTL\dsetup.dll
GTL\GFX.GTL
GTL\GTL.EXE
GTL\GTLConfig.exe
GTL\GTLDedicated.exe
GTL\net.dll
GTL\net_dedicated.dll


2) COPY-PASTE-OVERWRITE
-----------------------

a) New GT Legends INSTALL highly recommended either from original DISC or digital STEAM version

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ULTRA VERY IMPORTANT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
>>> OFFICIAL SIMBIN UPDATE 1.1 IS ALREADY INCLUDED IN BOTH STEAM VERSION & 10th Anniversary Patch
>>> StarForce DISC protection (driver) is NO MORE COMPATIBLE with Windows 7/8/10
>>> NEVER INSTALL OFFICIAL SIMBIN UPDATE 1.1 on Windows 7/8/10 because it includes StarForce protection
>>> NEVER RUN GTL.EXE FROM DISC or OFFICIAL SIMBIN UPDATE 1.1 on Windows 7/8/10 because it will install incompatible StarForce driver
>>> YOU CAN ONLY RUN DISC INSTALLER TO MAKE A NEW GTL INSTALL AND NOTHING ELSE
>>> YOU CAN ONLY RUN THE DISC VERSION WHEN 10th ANNIVERSARY PATCH IS INSTALLED

b) Copy ALL FILES & FOLDERS from GTL 10th Anniversary Patch in your GTL directory (click YES to overwrite ALL FILES & FOLDERS)

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ULTRA VERY IMPORTANT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
>>> REQUIRED EXTRA STEP with DISC version OR if you did the mistake to install official SimBin update 1.1
>>> Go to your GTL install
>>> run PATCH_FOR_DISC_VERSION.bat : this file will remove all StarForce files and it will check with sfdrvrem.exe (official removal tool from StarForce website) if a StarForce driver is installed then it will remove it and restart your computer

c) REQUIRED with Windows 7/8/10 : Inside GTL\ directory set ALL .EXE files as WindowsXP compatible (right click>properties>compatibility) and check ADMINISTRATOR rights

d) Run GTLConfig.exe : set your monitor resolution (choose any 32bits), choose DirectX 9 (DO NOT set AUTO) and DO NOT CHECK AA/vSync options (go to AMD/NVIDIA settings instead: choose DIABLOII profile)

e) REQUIRED with MODERN MULTI-CORES PROCESSORS : you MUST ENABLE AT LEAST 2 CORES to fix low FPS BUG !!!
You've got 3 solutions :
>>> Bill2's Process Manager (freeware) but no more updated so safety risk for virus/malwares/exploits !!!
>>> Process Lasso (payware) is still updated and the free version (you cannot enable all cores in free version) is enough to fix the bug
>>> manual CTRL+SHIFT+ESC just after launching the game, then select GT Legends and manually check the cores to enable them

f) At last, now you can run GTL.exe

g) Edit your PLR : go to \GT Legends\UserData\YOURNAME to make a backup of YOURNAME.plr then open it with notepad and replace these lines :

AI Driver Strength Boost="0" // For the hardcore only - strength value added to in-game difficulty levels to make AI faster
AI Power Calibration="4" // Adjustments with AI strength (0=none, or add the following: 1=power, 2=gearing, 4=fuel)
AI Additional Fuel Mult="0.95" // Additional fuel multiplier for AIs because of their driving style
AI Brake Power Usage="0.96" // Fraction of theoretical brake power that AI attempt to use
AI Brake Grip Usage="0.96" // Fraction of theoretical brake grip that AI attempt to use
AI Corner Grip Usage="0.93" // you can set value between 0.90 for slow AI and 0.96 for fast AI. THIS IS THE MOST EFFECTIVE SETTINGS TO ADJUST AI SPEED TO YOUR OWN DRIVING SKILLS (confirmed by Shovas and Andrew C. Clegg)
AI Max Load="42000.00000" // Maximum total load to set up theoretical performance tables
AI Min Radius="8.00000" // Minimum radius turn to set up theoretical performance tables
AI to AI Collision Rate="32" // Detection rate per second (1-40) for AI-to-AI collisions (40 is FPS killer with heavy mods/tracks)
Player Car Equal="0"

Vehicle Specific AI Setups="0" //This last one is very important when you use mods!!!


NB: this GT Legends 10th Anniversary Patch, and GT Legends HQ MODS COLLECTION as well, will never cause CTD but one day you might install other mods which will. If Crash-To-Desktop happens then launch GT Legends with "GTL_debug.bat" then you will get more info about the CTD by opening TRACE.TXT text file in GTL\UserData\LOG\


3) [OPTIONS]
------------
a-[PREVIEW] : GT Legends 10th Anniversary Patch screenshots

b-[README] : you have got important reading here and especially Shovas-PLR-FFB-Tweaks for better wheels feeling

c-[OPTIONAL LANGUAGES] : choose your language then copy ALL FILES & FOLDERS in GTL directory (click YES to overwrite ALL FILES & FOLDERS)

d-[GT Legends UNLOCKER] : copy TG2001.DYN in \GTL directory to unlock all cars & championships

e-[STOCK GAME BACKUP] : restore default game files if you wanna join a GTL league for online races or if you want to keep original game 1.1

f-[PLGTL v1_2 by Po Linii Team] : Po Linii GTL physics mod by brrupsz & Ownage

g-[No more binks menu v1.0 by DooGal] : original mod by DooGal to remove car bik video display (backup of original menu is included)

h-[MPH-KMH PATCH] : mod to enable either Km/h or mph in cockpit view

ONLINE INFORMATION :
--------------------
GT Legends is more than 10 years old now and SimBin lobby online server is definitely closed : this means that your only chance to play GT Legends online nowadays is to join a GTL league such as altbierbude.de or simracing.org.uk by example.
Moreover, this GT Legends 10th Anniversary PATCH will overwrite stock files so you may experience online mismatch with your favorite GTL league server. In order to by-pass this issue you can try to :
- edit your PLR file in GTL\UserData\USERNAME.PLR with notepad, go to line 492 at "Report Mismatches=" and set it to "0"
- restore stock game files from [OPTIONS]\e-[STOCK GAME]
- ask your league manager to add GT Legends 10th Anniversary PATCH files to the server

Installation :
--------------
TIP: you can have multiple GT Legends installs on your PC so a new/clean install dedicated to this 10t Anniversary PATCH is highly recommended and no need to backup files in this case : you can skip step 1 and go ahead to step 2.

1) BACKUP (make a 7z/rar/zip archive to save your files)
---------
GTL\GameData\Sounds (ALL FOLDER)
GTL\GameData\Teams\M-FPDriver.gmt
GTL\GameData\Teams\M-FPDriver2.gmt

2) COPY-PASTE-OVERWRITE
-----------------------

a) New GT Legends INSTALL highly recommended either from original DISC or digital STEAM version

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ULTRA VERY IMPORTANT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
>>> OFFICIAL SIMBIN UPDATE 1.1 IS ALREADY INCLUDED IN BOTH STEAM VERSION & 10th Anniversary Patch
>>> StarForce DISC protection (driver) is NO MORE COMPATIBLE with Windows 7/8/10
>>> NEVER INSTALL OFFICIAL SIMBIN UPDATE 1.1 on Windows 7/8/10 because it includes StarForce protection
>>> NEVER RUN GTL.EXE FROM DISC or OFFICIAL SIMBIN UPDATE 1.1 on Windows 7/8/10 because it will install incompatible StarForce driver
>>> YOU CAN ONLY RUN DISC INSTALLER TO MAKE A NEW GTL INSTALL AND NOTHING ELSE
>>> YOU CAN ONLY RUN THE DISC VERSION WHEN 10th ANNIVERSARY PATCH IS INSTALLED

b) Copy ALL FILES & FOLDERS from GTL 10th Anniversary Patch in your GTL directory (click YES to overwrite ALL FILES & FOLDERS)

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ULTRA VERY IMPORTANT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
>>> REQUIRED EXTRA STEP with DISC version OR if you did the mistake to install official SimBin update 1.1
>>> Go to your GTL install
>>> run PATCH_FOR_DISC_VERSION.bat : this file will remove all StarForce files and it will check with sfdrvrem.exe (official removal tool from StarForce website) if a StarForce driver is installed then it will remove it and restart your computer

c) REQUIRED with Windows 7/8/10 : Inside GTL\ directory set ALL .EXE files as WindowsXP compatible (right click>properties>compatibility) and check ADMINISTRATOR rights

d) Run GTLConfig.exe : set your monitor resolution (choose any 32bits), choose DirectX 9 (DO NOT set AUTO) and DO NOT CHECK AA/vSync options (go to AMD/NVIDIA settings instead: choose DIABLOII profile)

e) REQUIRED with MODERN MULTI-CORES PROCESSORS : you MUST ENABLE AT LEAST 2 CORES to fix low FPS BUG !!!
You've got 3 solutions :
>>> Bill2's Process Manager (freeware) but no more updated so safety risk for virus/malwares/exploits !!!
>>> Process Lasso (payware) is still updated and the free version (you cannot enable all cores in free version) is enough to fix the bug
>>> manual CTRL+SHIFT+ESC just after launching the game, then select GT Legends and manually check the cores to enable them

f) At last, now you can run GTL.exe

g) Edit your PLR : go to \GT Legends\UserData\YOURNAME to make a backup of YOURNAME.plr then open it with notepad and replace these lines :

AI Driver Strength Boost="0" // For the hardcore only - strength value added to in-game difficulty levels to make AI faster
AI Power Calibration="4" // Adjustments with AI strength (0=none, or add the following: 1=power, 2=gearing, 4=fuel)
AI Additional Fuel Mult="0.95" // Additional fuel multiplier for AIs because of their driving style
AI Brake Power Usage="0.96" // Fraction of theoretical brake power that AI attempt to use
AI Brake Grip Usage="0.96" // Fraction of theoretical brake grip that AI attempt to use
AI Corner Grip Usage="0.93" // you can set value between 0.90 for slow AI and 0.96 for fast AI. THIS IS THE MOST EFFECTIVE SETTINGS TO ADJUST AI SPEED TO YOUR OWN DRIVING SKILLS (confirmed by Shovas and Andrew C. Clegg)
AI Max Load="42000.00000" // Maximum total load to set up theoretical performance tables
AI Min Radius="8.00000" // Minimum radius turn to set up theoretical performance tables
AI to AI Collision Rate="32" // Detection rate per second (1-40) for AI-to-AI collisions (40 is FPS killer with heavy mods/tracks)
Player Car Equal="0"

Vehicle Specific AI Setups="0" //This last one is very important when you use mods!!!


NB: this GT Legends 10th Anniversary Patch, and GT Legends HQ MODS COLLECTION as well, will never cause CTD but one day you might install other mods which will. If Crash-To-Desktop happens then launch GT Legends with "GTL_debug.bat" then you will get more info about the CTD by opening TRACE.TXT text file in GTL\UserData\LOG\
